If you don’t place something pretty on top of your tables, they can end up either bare and boring or completely cluttered with various things. Finding the right decorative piece for each tabletop can maximize their function and even be the missing touch to your whole design theme. It’s also an easy way to change up your interiors without doing something drastic. Plus, you can have a new arrangement every day. All it takes is very light lifting and some arrangement. Throw in some flowers in that vase, and you’re even set for a party.
Work tables at home tend to be a scene of organized chaos. Though your unique system may work, nothing can help reset your creative slump like a clean slate. Get all the clutter out and leave the essentials. In the middle of the table, leave a cute, personalized stationery from Notera. The Nautical Black print will encourage you to sit down and make a list of things to do.
It’s hard to get into tall heels sometimes. Good thing that among your trinkets on your dressing room table is the Manolo Shoe Horn from Habitat (P3,540). Re-created by Manolo Blahnik, it carries the classic design of his famous shoes in a sleek chrome aluminum design. Function, fashion, and design in one compact item.

There are just a few things you need on your bedside table. One of which is a good lamp to help you read a book at night, and help you find your stuff in your bedside drawer. It also helps when it’s already pretty to look at without turning the switch on like the Crate & Barrel Sasha Table Lamp (P14,950). Inspired by Art Deco design, the stand is stacked with clear crystal rounds that help diffuse light further aside from just making the whole lamp look pretty.

Your kitchen counters tend to be a little forgotten due to the utility they serve. Match that function with the Riviera Catch All Tray (P595) from Seek the Uniq. Use it to keep aside napkins and utensils for easy access or even to serve some snacks.
It’s already mid-September and we bet you’ve hosted a party or two. It’s just the start of the festivities until December so for every dinner gathering, have a good table runner to remix your solid color table cloths.

Speaking of entertaining, you need a centerpiece that can be the talking point of a party. The Lalique Champs-Élysées Bowl just might be the trick.
